I would prefer to have a completely Free system as well. Right now I only
have 3 non-free packages (I think): flash, acroread, blackdown java. I would
love to replace them but last time I checked there were no fully-featured free
I tried Kaffe in the past but it never seemed to work for anything I tried to
run on it. That was a while ago, though, I imagine it's improved. I just
don't have time to test another package, I'm in the process of releasing
about 50,000 lines of my own code GPL. I have to pick my battles.
